At HealthBridge Chiropractic we understand the importance of hip joint health and function as it relates to injuries such as:
- Hip Sprain/Strain
- IT Band and Hip Contracture
- Age Related Hip Pain
- Traumatic Injury such as falls, motor car accidents and work injuries
- Overuse Injuries
Often time’s hip pain is not directly related to the hip joint itself but is actually referred from the back, groin, abdominal or buttocks region. Due to the complex nature of this joint and the multiple regions that can generate hip pain it is important to have a thorough consultation and evaluation and for your chiropractor to develop a specific and detailed treatment plan for your condition. Depending on the condition, plain x-rays or other advanced diagnostic testing could be necessary to come to an accurate and detailed diagnosis. Common treatment would include manipulation to the hip and spine, the use of therapeutic modalities, stretching and strengthening exercises and the prescription of a home exercise program.
If you suffer from hip pain, please contact our office to schedule an appointment with one of our chiropractors. If you live in or around Philadelphia, we will gladly answer any of your questions and provide you with the best treatment options available to you.
